P.A.: a professional, high quality system, (EV series x array, xi, xlc, x-line; D&B; Meyer; Nexò; V-dosc, d-V-Dosc..) according to the room size; should be actively crossovered ( 3 or 4 ways ) and powered by matched, high quality amps . Should be flown where possible; if not, stacked on risers out of stage. The system should be in Stereo configuration; an indipendent output to feed the subs should be provided where possible; balcony, frontfill and delayline speakers should be installed where necessary and precisely delayed.

We prefere an anologic consolle; digital consolle only where monitors are driven by a separate mon desk. NO 01, 03, Beheringer digital. F.O.H. position should be centrally located – if possible not under balcony – not behind a window! Provide a talkback mic to stage monitors.

Where a monitor mixer is provided, an experienced monitor engineer should be available during stage set up, sound check and show.
Where a monitor mix is not provided, f.o.h. desk must be capable of 4 equalized pre aux sends (monitors) and 4 post aux sends (fx)
